If you had to pick... could you?

Wedding cupcakes

The theme is green and white for these "hantaran" or wedding cupcakes. I had put calla lillies on these Classic Butter cupcakes and piped white dots royal icing on the green fondant too.

More bakes for Christmas

Here are more cakes and cookies that I baked for this Christmas. 

Classic Butter Cake

The cake below is a one kg Classic Butter cake frosted with butter cream icing. The customer just let me do any Christmas themed design on the cake. I always love red and green (err..The Cookie Cat's colours :)). So, here's the outcome..

Steamed Fruit Cake

We have always been selling our steamed fruit cakes as they are i.e. without any icing. This is because the cakes are just lovely as they are, rich and moist :) For this Christmas, a customer has requested that we cover the cake with fondant and decorate it with poinsettia.

I use honey to coat the cake before covering it with fondant because I don't have apricot jam (I have to read up on this as this is my first time using fondant to cover a fruit cake).

Gingerbread Cookies

What is Christmas without the all time favourite Gingerbread man cookies? The cookies are good on their own but look lovely with the royal icing decoration.

Turn the cookies around and decorate them as reindeer cookies :)

Here are some Santa cookies too. They are so cute ya :)

Well, it is so much fun baking these!!

Merry Christmas!

We would like to wish a very Merry Christmas to all our Christian friends and customers. Enjoy your joyous occasion with your loved ones! Here are more of the bakes that we did for this Christmas celebrations.

This is a one kg Classic Butter cake with buttercream icing and decorated with Christmas themed edible images (at the sides of the cake) and non-edible Christmas toppers (reindeer, Santa Claus, snowman, and trees :))

Classic butter cupcakes to add to the celebration ..

Have a safe but fun celebration ya :)

It's Christmas time again :)

Gosh, time really flies this year. It's been a year of changes at The Cookie Cat, with the relocation of business and all. But I'm now more focused in doing what I love to do and that's baking! With the tremendous support from all of you, I've been as busy as ever during this time of year.

I just finished baking and decorating these Christmas themed chocolate chip cookies today. A customer ordered them for a Christmas party at her office.

We have also recently packed some goodies for another office Christmas party. Each goodies pack has our best selling chocolate fudge brownies, red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing, and mocha chunk cookies. The goodies were distributed to the staff at their Christmas dinner.

I'm baking butter cakes now where some will be decorated with Christmas themes. I will post the photos at the next update. Hmmm...I'll be writing more nowadays as moving back home gives me that peace of mind and environment where I can write.

Dear Helen
Someone called today asking for a surprise delivery of assorted treats, and texted a thank you note to go along with it. We thought the recipient would appreciate some good old handwritten love— and we were right!
